With this book, we finally have a record of one of the very, very few mainstream reporters who actually delved into one of the assassinations of the sixties. Who tried to do an honest job and who actually tried to follow the evidence wherever it was headed, writes Jim DiEugenio.

Recent reporting concerning Paul Schrade's testimony at Sirhan's February 2016 parole hearing contrasts starkly with how the Washing Post has traditionally treated stories concerning the assassinations of the 1960s, writes Jim DiEugenio.

Letter sent in advance of Sirhan's parole hearing in February of 2016.
Full transcript of Sirhan's parole board hearing, February 16, 2016 (includes Paul Schrade's statements).
Paul Schrade, now 91 years old, was shot in the head on June 5, 1968, at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles while standing alongside Robert Kennedy. Schrade contends that the now 71-year-old Sirhan was not the only shooter that night, and that Kennedy was actually killed by a second gunman.
Jim DiEugenio commemorates the important contributions made by Bill Turner to the study of the JFK and RFK cases and his role during Garrison's investigation.
